They really seem to still have fun being a band...they could write the book on how to be a mega-huge band for a couple decades, while still enjoying it and appreciating it.

I think Foo Fighters have 'em beat, but you're definitely not wrong! Haha.

I wonder that the setlist was. I remember they did stuff like this right before 21CB came out and they were playing new songs.

Good point. Dave just has fun and enjoys everything he does in the music world. That guy needs to be crowned "Permanent Music Ambassador" for planet Earth.

Only a band like Green Day could do something like this! Love them. It must be so fun for them to play smaller, secret shows like this. All these years, and they're still kickin' ass.

Are they touring in Australia?

I believe they're playing Soundwave Festival, which I assume will be their last show for a while.

Would definitely have been fun... The show was only about 8km (that's like 5 miles folks) from my place, but I don't feel too cut up about missing it. Would have been an insane asylum trying to get in.

If insane asylums were things that people nearly murdered each other trying to get into, I guess.

Foos are similar, always looking to be enjoying themselves. But they've also had a revolving door of members compared with Green Day.

Headlining Soundwave, playing three hours per festival. Three hours! That is a headliner.

But I'm not going. It was either mosh to shit bands all day just to be close when Green Day played that night, or rock up late and watch them from a mile away :(

I managed to see this! I was on the bus home from a night out and then saw them post on Facebook that they were only a few kms away from me - so I ran! Small venue was so packed, didn't make it inside but the last 2 songs that I managed to catch were great! - St Jimmy, American Idiot.
